Mini Corn Dogs: A Bite-Sized Delight for Everyone
Want to make your corn dogs smaller for little hands? No problem! You don’t even need sticks for these bite-sized delights—just remember to let them cool down a bit before indulging. Inspired by air fryer pigs in a blanket, these mini corn dogs feature a delectable cornbread coating that perfectly complements the juicy hot dog within.
The Perfect Batter: Jiffy Cornbread or Bisquick?
When it comes to creating the perfect batter for your corn dogs, two options stand out. If you’re looking for the easiest method and don’t mind going for a traditional taste, reach for the yellow box of baking mix that’s likely sitting in your pantry. While it won’t have cornmeal, it still delivers a delectable flavor. Alternatively, you can use Jiffy corn muffin mix for a taste that closely resembles the frozen version.
Timing is Everything: How Long to Cook Corn Dogs in the Air Fryer
The beauty of making corn dogs in the air fryer is how quickly they cook. No need to boil hot dogs beforehand—simply wrap them in your chosen dough and let the air fryer work its magic. Just remember that these recipes assume you’re using regular-sized hot dogs. If you opt for sausage links or mini hot dogs, adjust the cooking time accordingly.
Let’s Get Cooking: Homemade Corn Dog Recipes
Jiffy Mix Corn Dogs
- 1 box Jiffy cornbread mix
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp milk
- 1/4 stick of melted butter
- 1 tsp cumin (optional)
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
Bisquick Corn Dogs
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp Bisquick mix (Jiffy baking mix works too)

Take your pick between these two delicious options or try the keto version listed below. Mix the ingredients until you achieve a thick dough and wrap it around each hot dog or sausage.
The Keto Twist: Indulge in Crunchy Keto Corn Dogs
For those following a keto lifestyle, we have a special treat: keto corn dogs that are super crunchy and air-fried to perfection. To make the keto corn dog dough, gently heat mozzarella cheese and almond flour in a saucepan until a dough forms. Remove from heat, allow to cool on a cutting board, and shape the dough with your hands. Alternatively, you can use the Bisquick corndog dough or the Jiffy cornbread dough mentioned earlier.
Tips for Corn Dog Nirvana
To achieve corn dog perfection, follow these tips:
- Push a stick 1/2 to 3/4 of the way into each hot dog.
- Preheat your air fryer to 350°F for 5 minutes.
- For a keto corn dog, use a heaping tablespoon of dough to wrap each hot dog.
- For other versions, ensure the entire hot dog is coated with the dough.
- Place a single layer of corn dogs on parchment paper in your air fryer basket.
- Lightly spray the tops with olive oil spray.
- Cook for a total of 5-8 minutes, flipping the corn dogs halfway through. Spray the tops again during the flip.
- Once the corn dogs are golden brown, remove them from the air fryer and allow them to cool slightly before savoring the deliciousness.
